    Model X Road Trips

    In theory, I could go all the way from Price to Tremonton without stopping. In the Summer that would not worry me at all. I wonder how much of a charge I will need in Price during the winter to make that? We will be spending the night in Green River, and we can easily leave there with 95 or...

    Model X Road Trips

    We will be traveling through Salt Lake City around lunch time during our Christmas trip. I have never stopped at the SLC SuperCharger before but the map makes it look like a terrible meal time location! For those of you who have been in a similar situation, I assume you grab something To Go...

    Poll: NEW Model X Delivery Experience 2019

    A couple of Tesla's "mobile techs" showed up at my house last night for "attempt #2" to fix the body panel alignment issues in my new Model X. Even though this is attempt #2, they quickly realized that they were not going to get far on the trunk hatch because they forgot to order a new wing and...

    New front seat design now shipping!

    I think I am glad that I just took delivery of my X, before this change went into affect. The pictures have me worried. The head restraints now point sharply forward. I was going to get a 3 or Y, until I test drove a 3 and found that the head restrained banged against the back of my head...

    Poll: NEW Model X Delivery Experience 2019

    I ordered on August 8th and finally took delivery of a red Model X on September 24th. I have been trying to get it "fixed" ever since then. I am in New Mexico, where it is illegal for Tesla to do business. The X had to be sent down from Littleton Co via an independent trucker. The trucker...

    Cleaning Windows?

    I have tried various Invisible Glass products and have always been disappointed. I really do not understand why it gets such high ratings. True, it does not leave streaks, but it also doesn't clean worth a damn. I recently tried Sprayway and was impressed. It actually got the glass clean! It...

    Rear view camera at top of screen

    Bummer. Since the turn-by-turn is in the main console, the map is less important than the back up camera, considering the very limited visibility out the back.

    Rear view camera at top of screen

    I have watched a few youtube videos where the rear view camera was at the top of the screen and the map was at the bottom. I cannot figure out how to get my new X into that mode. Can someone give me a clue? TIA

    12V Electric Water Kettle

    Right. I read the wrong specification from the manual. The socket is only cable of 15A. A lot more expensive, but this (or something like it) is probably a safer option: https://www.amazon.com/YETI-Rambler-Vacuum-Insulated-Stainless/dp/B07CRGWDSZ

    12V Electric Water Kettle

    Good thought on reading the manual. I had not thought to check that. For the Model X, the manual states it can handle up to 33amps. I hope that means it would be okay, as long as the high voltage battery can keep the 12V charged. For my plan, it only be active while driving would be fine. I...

    12V Electric Water Kettle

    I am considering buying one of these for a road trip I am planning this Winter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07LF6P8D3 It looks like it draws around 20 amps. I assume that would come from the Tesla's 12V battery. Will that be a problem? I am unclear on how the Tesla 12V battery is...

    What the $#@$# is going on with Model X custom orders

    I am really jealous of those who have already received their cars. Especially those who order long after I did.

    Model X Road Trips

    My plan is to hit Tremonton, UT about the time for lunch. Looking at google maps, there is pretty much nothing of interest near the SC. Especially since I will have dogs with me. I guess we can find some place to get take-out and then eat in the car while it charges.

    Winter Road Trip with dogs?

    I am a little worried about leaving my dog in the car alone. He is a puppy so I cannot use a crash harness on him yet. I do have a PupSaver which attaches to the back seat using child seat latches. The PupSaver attaches to him via an adjustable tether, so I could loosen that up to give him more...

    Winter Road Trip with dogs?

    Has anyone done a significant road trip in the middle of Winter? With dogs? For the lunch stop with warmer temperatures, I would try to find a "dog friendly" restaurant, which translates into one with a patio. In the winter it would be too cold to sit on a patio. Unless you have a service...
